" in an inaugural address, and i think that is where the country is heading. he laid down a marker for this when he talked abut equality. >> mark? >> establishing my grading system at the outset, i give a's second,ln, roosevelt's and kennedy paused only. i would give obama a b, a bb- plus. he was far more surefooted than had been in the past. since the member 6 he has shown a far clearer sense of what he wants to do. i think this was a communitarian address, a lot more than the individualism and we have heard in recent past. >> charles? >> i will buck the tide of grade inflation that has infected the panel. if you are a liberal, this was an a plus, a declaration of a liberal future. declaration that 30 years of conservative ascendancy that began with a ragged's inaugural where he stated in a minute and a half, government is not the solution, but is the problem, this was an overturning of that. this is a way of saying we are in a new era which he will initiate. from that perspective, i give him credit for honesty, open this, boldness about who he is and what he wants to do. i was just amazed that so
president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includ
news." later on cbs, president obama and outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton sit down together on "60 minutes." for now i'm jim axelrod cbs news in new york. scott pelley will be here tomorrow. good night. captioning sponsored by cbs captioned by media access group at wgbh access.wgbh.org santa clara as the 49ers head for new orleans... right now... the team is arriving at its hotel in the french quarter... we're live with their first "touch down" and the team's first news conf >>> the 49ers head to new orleans. >>> the team is arriving at its hotel in the french quarter. we are live. >>> adding up the impact of a super bowl appearance. why it is not just about dollars and cents a ceremonial sendoff from san jose international today -- as the 49ers leave the bay area -- bound for super bowl 47. >>> and good evening. a ceremonial send off from san jose international today as the 49ers leave the bay area bound for the super bowl. >> many fans were there and urged them to bring home the trophy. we have the sports team in new orleans, dennis ooh -- dennis o
. >> we just learned a federal appeals court has struck down president obama recess appointme appointments. deb labor secretary sharon block, union lawyer richard griffin and attorney terrence flynn. today a three-judge federal panel said those appointments are invalid because the senate was only in recess and technically in session. the ruling could invalidate hundreds of decisions the labor board maybe over the last year. i want to bring in paul to talk about what does this mean? first of all, for the three that were appointed and then secondly for some of the decisions that they have made. >> this is a very important decision. this court called the d.c. circuit which has jurisdiction over all federal agencies is often a thorn in the side of the president. it's also a prestigious federal court. many supreme justices come from the court. it's got a lot of prestige and power. their decision really is a surprise decision here. what they did was they looked at the constitution and they said the founding fathers defined recess in a certain way and during a recess of the congress, the presiden
. >> woodruff: one week into his second term, president obama officially took on the issue of immigration today. he said it comes down to a simple question: whether the country and the government have the resolve, finally, to deal with the long-festering national challenge. the president launched his effort in nevada where more than a quarter of the state's residents are hispanic. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehends i have been immigration reform. ( cheers and applause ) the time is now. >> woodruff: the campaign-style event at a las vegas high school came a day after a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators put forward their own plan. it calls for creating a path to legal citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people now estimated to be living in the u.s implementing that policy would be contingent on securing the southern border. seven years ago then senator obama the joined a similar effort >> if the compromise that's been discussed and has the agreement of those who were in this room, if that ends up being the bill that is signed into law, it's a
that doesn't put border security first. let's go to carl cameron in washington. how do you break this down? is there a big difference from what you heard from president obama, compared to the bipartisan commission of eight senators yesterday? we heard a lot more from the so-called gang of eight. they got more granular. what we heard from the president was a campaign rally. he is going to head out on the campaign trail and push his agenda items with campaign-style peaches of that nature. you could hear the crowd getting wooped up with campaign-style rhetoric to advance this. it's generalities and we haven't seen the details. what is noting is that the president has changed his language. in the past when he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform, he has talked about the desire as an end game to get those here now illegally, quote, legal status. now he is saying this is a path not to legal status, but a path to citizenship. that's much more aggressive. the time table he is likely to propose is a slightly faster path to citizensship than what the commission has put forward. ha
by a margin of 700,000. in this elicateerate right now, president obama won with 10 promise of the electorate. we are seeing a changing of the american electorate and have to do a better job as republicans of reaching out. it really comes down to this fundamental idea, this principle-- are we going to talk about what we're for or are we going to talk about what we're against geaness? we lulled ourselves into a belief that in the 2010 elections, because we had very good results in the midterms, that we could be a party of no and run against spending, run against deficits. but in order to prosper and become a majority party we have to talk about what we're for. immigration is an example. what does a modernizedly immigration system look like and how is it part a larger economic argument, part of the argument of values and families? that is our challenge as part of the rebuilding process going forward. >> schieffer: let's talk a little bit-- i want to talk to you about this overseas, problems that may be coming up. clearly, dianne feinstein says, hey, the war on terror is is not over. it's still
. we're keeping them honest. they weren't such good pals. hillary clinton, president obama cap off a run as secretary of state on a sit-down interview on "60 minutes." >>> he was an inspiration to photo journalists around the world. tim heathering ton died doing what he does best, what happened in the midst of world. libya, 40 years old, he was a friend to this program. i'll speak to his close friend and colleague sebastian younger who put together an amazing documentary celebrating his life. that and more at the top of the hour. >>> our fifth story "outfront," changing the rules of the game. republicans in a number of states that president obama won in november want to change the way electoral votes in their states are distributed. currently all states except nebraska and maine award all electoral votes to one candidate. states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, and ohio are looking to award electoral vote busy congressional district. and that would give the gop a huge advantage in some crucial swing states. john king is "outfront" with all these changes could have affected th
the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker
minutes," president obama sat alongside his departing secretary of state hillary clinton, a one-time political rival who he now describes as one of his closest advisers. secretary clinton, of course, is stepping down from her post, fueling -- you'd think you're on steroids and not me, seriously. just stop. >> are you juicing? >> she is. >> i had a huge allergic reaction to something. >> we don't want to hear about your rashes, so roll the clip. go. >> what's the -- i have to ask you, what's the date of expiration on this endorsement? >> oh, steve, you know -- i know -- >> i have to ask that question. i mean, come on. i mean, you're sitting here together. everybody in town is talking about it already. and it's taking place. >> you know, steve, i've got to tell you. you guys in the press are incorrigible. i was literally inaugurated four days ago. >> right. >> and you're talking about elections four years from now. >> yeah. and i, as you know, steve, i am still secretary of state, so i'm out of politics, and i'm forbidden from even hearing these questions. >> boy. you know, they h
's "60 minutes," where they saw president obama and secretary of state hillary clinton sitting down. it was a joint interview. until last night's edition of "60 minutes," people had never seen it. they revealed the challenges of putting aside their once heated rivalry. >> i spent time with both of you in the 2008 campaign. that was a very tough, bitter race, and i'm going to spare you reading some of the things that you said about each other during that campaign. how long did it take you to get over there, and when did it happen? >> it didn't take as long as i think, people would perceive. as i said, once the primary was over hillary worked very hard for me. bill worked very hard for me. so we were interacting on a fairly regular basis. i think it was harder for the staffs which is understandable because they get invested in this stuff in ways that i think the candidates maybe don't. hillary mentioned part of our bond is we've been through a lot of the same stuff, and part of being through the same stuff is getting whacked around in political campaigns being cri
has said, if we have to shut down the government to make sure president obama understands that, we're serious, that's almost treason, according to the 14th amendment. thank you. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the gentleman from michigan. mr. camp: thank you. at this time i yield one minute to a distguished member from illinois, mr. davis. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. davis: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise in support of h.r. 325, base opped a simple principle if congress doesn't pass a budget, congress doesn't get paid. we cannot start the process of controlling spending in this country without a budget. we also cannot ask hard working taxpayers to manage their own budget when elected leaders fail to do sthosme house has passed a budget each of the last two years. the other body must do theirs if we are going to control the out of control spending. for years the senate has gotten away without passing a budget but they have found time to pass laws that increase spending. s that terrible way to run a government and
supporters of your opponents by looking down your nose at them. and, obviously, that sort of made me remember the comment for which mr. obama was much maligned in the 2008 campaign. let me just play that. >> we went to some of these small towns in pennsylvania, like a lot of small towns in the midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. and it's not surprising then, that they get bitter. and they cling to guns or religion. >> rowland, should the democrats heed president clinton's advice on the gun issue? >> i think what the key for democrats to do is, again, to be sensible when it comes to guns. you have seen democrats who are strong nra supporters say, we should do something. and that's what the real key here is. the problem is when it becomes, you either do something, and the opposition says, no, you do nothing. there has to be some kind of middle ground. so what some democrats are saying is, look, we've got to be able to appeal to them. but it's not just folks in the south also, erin. you have democrats in minnesota, wisconsin, maine, new york that have a
. what a statement they have for america. it is probably not what you expected. president obama promised to close gitmo and the office working to close it is shut down instead. now why would that be? who went second. who believes that there are gun laws on the books that are the strongest statement we can do. you they, what would you do to sort of calm his fears, to insist that you will do everything you can in your power as one of the outspoken people on this issue to make sure gun laws are enforced that are on the books? >> well, one of the things that hit me right away when i heard this horrible news, is that here we go again, a law that says no guns in a particular area. gun-free zone was once again a factor in what happened in this tragedy. it's, i don't think it is a miss talk that all of the mass murders that we've experienced over last 20 years have occurred in gun-free zones. all but one of them legally enforced gun-free zones. that, ought to tell us something that, we're not making ourselves safe when nobody is around to protect anybody with a gun. this guy committed suicide an
said they would support the house bill, which they claimed as a victory >> president obama has consistently said he'd refuse to negotiate around the debt ceiling. his strategy is vindicated now that the republicans have backed off their threats to take the nation into a default. the president stared down the republicans. they blinked. >> ifill: congress still faces other fiscal fights. automatic spending cuts are due to kick in on march first, and funding for the government runs out march 27. so, can the republican party use fiscal issues to regain its footing? for more on the political fights ahead we turn to susan page, washington bureau chief for "u.s.a. today." and stuart rothenberg of the "rothenberg political report" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they
in the direction of the white house to wish the obama administration success in passing tighter gun control laws. >> tens of thousands of protestors took to the streets of san francisco for the anniversary of legalizing abortion. pro-life protestors marched down market street from the civic center to justin herman plaza demanding roe v wade be turned over. a law student who testified before congress about contraception was a guest speaker. >> there is a more profound sight about access. about affordability and insurance coverage and making sure people especially in rural areas have access. >> i would like to see everyone question abortion more. they say it should be legal and safe they don't talk about rare. >> as many as 40,000 people attended the pro-life rally. it's the biggest antiabortion event on the west coast. >>> supreme court could weigh in on the health care law requiring employee insurance plans to cover the cost of contraceptions. dozens of lawsuits have been filed by charities saying the mandate violates their religious beliefs. antists say appeals courts have made conflicting ruli

are called nation building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down and, drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for those changes. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, maybe you could start out and talk a bit about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is quote going to happen. i'll give you the mic. >> well, it's a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it's near certainty. once the sequestration provision was written into the budget. sal talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i really regarded as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is the erosion of the point of vanishing almost of the bipartisan political consensus for military strength, for key strength, people used to see. and that's rea
